Today’s Vintage Cafe looks back to 2003, around the time Steve Winwood made a return to rock with the album About Time. He’d had a string of massive, synth-driven pop hits in the ’80s (“Higher Love,” et al), but clearly felt more comfortable revisiting his roots in bands like Traffic, Blind Faith and the Spencer Davis Group.

Jamming behind a Hammond B-3 console, Winwood recorded this hour-long session at WFPK in Louisville, Ky., with the three-piece band that recorded About Time. The set list is spectacular, spanning the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, a cover of Timmy Thomas’ “Why Can’t We Live Together,” and material from About Time. It’s only available online for a short time, so be sure to spend some time with it now.

This segment originally aired on June 20, 2003.

Introducing… Chastity Belt

Seattle based post-post-punk outfit…

News

Chastity Belt

Chastity Belt formed while studying in a college town, but their story owes its true origin to Seattle.

Part of a resurgent DIY scene in the Pacific North West, the four piece seemingly found a freedom to explore both sound and lyrics.

So expect feminist abstraction fuelled by post-post-punk guitars, gleefully picking apart rock tropes and piecing them back together as they see fit.

Signed to Hardly Art, the quartet’s new album ‘Time To Go Home’ will be released in the UK on May 14th.

Ahead of this, Chastity Belt have placed entrancing new track ‘Joke’ online and it’s a belter of an introduction.

All morse code guitars, chugging bass lines, sighing vocals and scattered drums, the lyrics seem to yearn for some sense of meaning amidst a world dominated by irony.
